Overall Jimmy Lindsay and the team of coaches are owed thanks for their organisation, their hospitality and their introduction and contributions to both sessions. The players are both sessions took part keenly in the activities, asked pertinent questions and generally took part with great good humour and interest. This interest was maintained throughout the evening. I would like to thank again the players for their interest and for making the session so enjoyable, the club officials for staying throughout the duration of the session and Jimmy Lindsay for his assistance.

Report Prepared by: Jane Wilson Training & Development Officer Alcohol Focus Scotland Comments from Raith Rovers FC The presentation delivered by Jane was excellent, and the two sessions had lots of information and games for the players to participate in as two groups. The players were still talking about it on the Sunday prior to their match, which is a good sign of how much they enjoyed it Here are a few photos
